On a Hollywood backstage, would be-actor Darryl Harding overhears Hank Duncan and another dodgy character threatening Monolith studio executive Carson Robbins if he stops helping them to original negatives to produce pirate videos. Jessica isn't much surprised her script hasn't been read yet by producer Boyce Brown, who is busy trying to finish 'Cry of Destiny', the last film of the late giant Austin Young, which gets worse when his unknown adoptive daughter Audrey Young turns up, claiming to own all rights. Jessica finds the corpse of author Fritz Randall, former pupil of and leading expert on Young, apparently suicide by pills as his master once did, but suggests to Lt. Gabriel Caceras they might both have been murdered, which soon proves true for Fritz. Boyce's daughter and producer Elaine is arrested. With these and other intrigues on top of the script's, there is plenty of snooping and sleuthing to be done before she can unmask the killer.
